FLEAS. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 1 June 1912
FLEAS. Fleas deposit their eggs in. old carpets, rugs, furs, in undusted cor ners and crevices in rooms, as well as on cats and dogs. The larvae are very small, delicate, transparent mnag gots, which live in the dust in cro vices and crannies between the floor ing-boards, or under the floors if there are accumulations of dust there. Clear ing out periodical:y all floor-rugs, etc., and either sprinkling them with insec ticide, or scalding them and washing the floors with carbolic soap or kero sene soap and water, will destroy all the larvae. Any dogs or cats allowed inside the house should be frequently attended to. For dogs, strong car bolic soap should be used plentifully enough to give the body a good soak ing. Cats are best treated with Insec ticido, and if the cat is held for a few miputes over a newspaper the aslcI fleas whid will drop off can be Col1 eted and bante . ,'s

MORNINGTON v. FRANKSTON. MORNINGTON WIN EASILY. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 1 June 1912
MORNINGTON v. FRANKSTON. MORNINGTON WIN EASILY. These teams met at Mornington on Saturday, the result being an easy win for Mornington. The heavy rain before the match made the ground and ball very slippery, but nevertheless some good foot- ball was shown. From the bounce Mornington showed out, and were not long in attacking, and Booth scored first with a behind. Neil McArthur foolishly gave two free kicks to Baxter, which relieved the pressure for a while. Again forc- ing matters, the Point boys got the oval well forward, where Sullivan took a clever mark and scored first goal, O'Neill then came to the front for Frankston and forwarded, where Reynolds scored a goal with a hasty kick off the ground. Taken back to the other end, Harrison notched a point, and on the kick off the ball was taken along the wing to the other goal, where danger threatened, but W. Golds came to the rescue and put in a great run, taking the ball from the goal line half way down the ground. The first change s...

A Timely Warning. When to go you have a notion Sweethearting by the ocean, I can guess your fierce emotion Should you find out on the sly, Some dispicable young bounder With the keen scent of a hounder, Crawling fiat, just like a flounder, On you has played the'spy. When you are infatuated, And your spirits are elated By your darling's sweetly stated "You're.the apple of my eye," For murder you'd be seeking Should you hear whilst she is speaking (Betrayed by boots a-creaking) . The footsteps of a spy. Lovers all, a fact I'm stating, A true tale I'm relating, So that when you go a mating Near the ocean bye and bye, Heed this versifier's warning, Or you'll find that some bright morning, Your love's heold up to scorning Per the medium of a spy. So when your heart is swelling, And love's old tale you're telling, In which you are revelling, Look around both low and high; If you see him, lads, don't leather him, But to a tree trunk tether him, And then just tar and feather him A fit fate ...
MORNINGTON v. SOMERVILLE. [Newspaper Article] — Mornington Standard — 8 June 1912
MORNINGTON v. SOMERVILLE. The 'arge crowd who assembled at Somerville on Saturday last, to wit ness the match between the abyve clubs were sadly disappointed, for, instead of seeing a good friendly game, as is generally the case, 'it was degenerated into a rough and tumble. A very poor exhibition of football was displayed, which was chiefly due to the erratic umpiring of Way, and allowing the game to get beyond his control. In the first half, Somerville had it all their own way, scoring 5 goals 2 behinds to M0ornington 1 goal 5 behinds. In the second half, Morn ingtosi took the game in hand, and rar, completely over Somerville, who never scored a point; For Mornington, Wilson, Garlick, Connell, McArthur (2), Judd, Thompson, Connop, and Harrison played well, but their for wards kicked wretched y. For Somer ville, Griffeth, Ingles, ' Vansuylen, Thornell, Monk,; Webb- and' . est played best. "Final- Cores.S: Somerville-5.2 (32 points). Mornington-3.11 (29 points). -Grifith's high marki...
